Hmmm, this just changed my opinion on making a dual loop in my system (although more tubes may just looker cooler (pun) ).

Would it be a good idea to run two pumps in a single loop if one plans on cooling everything?

yes... serial setup. One of the biggest reasons for me, you always have a backup pump running if one fails.

Well, if I do it that way I am thinking I will buy this dual pump I saw earlier (one is purely backup) and have yet another pump. If I still have just two pumps without a backup they could still both fail

so ... you have more radiator and less watt's running through your system. that is why our delta's, and water temp's are a bit different
I understand that but idle temps should not be much different, and 1x120 rad shouldn't make that much dif... right? i mean please correct me if i am wrong, i am fairly new to liquid myself ( only had it for 4 months )
